Adam and Dog

Minkyu Lee’s Oscar-nominated short represents a fusion of two distinct ideas — the Biblical story of Adam and Eve, and a National Geographic article that Lee had read about how dogs evolved from wolves and came to befriend mankind. Explaining the, ahem, genesis of the piece, Lee told one interviewer, “At that time, I was in the film directing program at Cal Arts.  During a writing workshop, while doing some writing exercises, that article came to mind.  It made me think about the origin of dogs and because of my faith, I immediately thought of the story of Genesis.”

All told, it took Minyu almost three years to complete Adam and Dog, as he was simultaneously employed by Disney. He could only pursue this personal project on nights and weekends, while spending his weekdays as an animator on Winnie the Pooh and character designer on Wreck-It Ralph.

The Lady and The Tramp

When it comes to mismatched lovers, Romeo and Juliet can’t hold a candle to the Lady and the Tramp, the pampered cocker spaniel and stray mutt who get all goggle-eyed in the 1955 Walt Disney animation. Here’s the film’s most romantic interlude, as the two share their first kiss over a spicy spaghetti dinner.


Disney’s Oscar-nominated animation, directed by John  Kahrs, pushes the boundaries of the medium in new directions by seamlessly merging computer-generated and hand-drawn imagery. The story follows a lonely young man in New York City who meets a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window. H/T iowntheworld
